Madonna’s Superbowl Halftime Show: A Celebration of the Grand Priestess of the Music Industry
The Vigilant Citizen ^ | 2/6/12

Posted on 02/07/2012 12:44:39 AM PST by hope

When I learned that Madonna – aka the Grand Priestess of the music industry – would be performing at the Superbowl halftime show, I thought: “This should be interesting”. And it was. While most were amazed by a woman in her fifties dancing around with LMFAO and others were annoyed at her lip-syncing, I was interested with something else: the flurry of symbolism flashed to billions of viewers worldwide. While most considered Madonna’s performance as an entertaining interlude to the most important football game of the year, those blessed with symbol-literacy will probably agree with the following statement: Madonna’s halftime show was a big celebration of the Illuminati industry and of its Grand Priestess, Madonna.

A week before the Superbowl, Madonna described on Anderson Cooper the spiritual importance she attributed to her halftime show:

“The Superbowl is kind of like the Holy of Holies in America. I’ll come at halfway of the “church experience” and I’m gonna have to deliver a sermon. It’ll have to be very impactful.”

Creepy, very creepy paranoid delusions rant based on weird claims of knowledge of the “occult”, as if such were real and of importance.

FYI, your superstitions do not frighten me, service and professional organizations do not frighten me.

Madonna does not frighten me, but the author might if I thought more than a few people would take them seriously.

I think Madonna is quite deliberate in playing upon imagery taken from religion, history and legend. Her take on good and evil is to embrace the latter. So... she would embrace hell. May she rest in peace... world peace.

She, and her dance crew, looked ridiculous. Laughable really.

While the Illuminati CT might appeal to a lunatic fringe minority who oppose it, there are as least as many lunatic fringe within CT groups who support and are portions of the Illuminati. Go figure.

My thoughts exactly.
I think she was copying Lady Gaa Gaa or is jealous of her or both.

(shrug) I was making a sandwich and snacking down in the kitchen.
Was the show any good?
Two of my all-time favorite movies had Madonna in them: ‘A League of Their Own’ and ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’. Plus, I enjoy a lot of her music. I’m not falling for the Joaquin Phoenix-style crazy talk.

“Wow, is she full of herself.”

You’re right. My thoughts from the onset of the show. Particularly, you wanna-Madonna. The Madonna chanting. The images. It was all Madonna all the time. Self-promoting and didn’t enhance the Super Bowl.

I didn't bother with the Super Bowl halftime show and Madonna, the washed-up, aged diva. As a matter of fact, I had to organize my sock drawer and missed the entire Super Bowl.

A pox on professional sports. It is just more boob bait for the Bubbas. There's more intellectual stimulation watching TruTV’s “World's Dumbest” or “Bait Car.”

What is your take on the choir at the end?
From what I understand they were all taken from local church choirs (one of them a friend of mine).

I didn’t bother watching. For several years the half time show has been too much flash and glitz. I use the time for a bathroom break, snack refills and beer run.

There are some things to marvel at here. One, she created herself from obscurity into a heck of a money maker. Two, she’s in great condition for a woman that age. But the whole show the group watching her at our home kept saying, “Here it comes. She’s really going to let it go now.” Ha! When it was over all I could think was, “Where’s the beef?”

.....that was not dancing in any sense of the word. Victor Cruze did more dancing in the end than anything that happened at half time.

She should have walked out the Super Bowl trophy during the post game as I’m sure she’s handled more balls than Raymond Berry.

Right. I thought the show was captivating for one song...”Vogue” After that it was a bunch of self-promoting crap. She should have done two more of her huge songs “Holiday” or “Like A Virgin.” She wsn’t there because she is current or hip, she was there because of her legacy, and she should have played to it.

I turned the garbage off as soon as I saw the occult symbolism, hubris, vanity, and paganism.

She has always been a mocker of Christ, but she has gotten worse.

The woman is even more Satanic today than she was a few years ago. Anyone watch her stuff on YouTube lately?

If you are "into" cults (and believe me, she is "into" one), then this is what happens. Demons and Lucifer take over.

And if you don't believe that, I pity you - because you will find out the hard way.

I can’t comment on the halftime show because I switched it off the nanosecond this woman appeared. Switched it back when I knew she was over.

She's into that Kaballa (sp?) book of Jewish mysticism - probably thinks she can cast spells and such. She's about as Jewish as Josef Stalin.

Still, the one thing I admire about her is how healthy she keeps herself. She has not hit "the wall" yet.

I was watching the Puppy Bowl and the Kitty halftime show at the time and missed it.

Not bad. The girl I was with kept making catty remarks, so I guess Madonna pulled it off, stumbles and all.

Madonna is an incredible story of a person who can’t sing, dance or act becoming fabulously wealthy. Without the media to promote her, Madonna would’ve been a third-rate act at a smokey, cheap seaport dive in Thailand.

Football halftime is more appropriately a time to feature marching bands.

Pop singers on the Superbowl field are comparable to clowns running up and down the aisles at the New York Philharmonic.

I think maybe you are missing the point to a degree

The author isn't trying to frighten you he is pointing out though poorly that in today's image saturated world symbolism is a powerful tool to influence minds and hearts

From a personal view point...I watched the show and basically thought along the same lines as the author

The article was pretty interesting with the explanation of the scene which is described as a sermon by Ce Lo Green and Madonna. The church choir was probably borrowed for using it’s authenticy. The entire thing rang of the cult of satan.

I think GaGag will be smart enough to take the money and run long before she reaches 50, and not be an old hag embarrassing her self like Ma Dona or should I say Grand Ma Dona.

The immediate words that came to mind were buffoons and clowns. It just seems that this dancing “style” has had its time and they need to move on. Reinventing vaudeville isn’t the answer.
